R & B singer Miguel may be known for his smooth voice, but it was his not-so-smooth moves that landed him in trouble – and on a fan’s head – during Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards.
The 27-year-old California singer, whose full name is Miguel Jontel Pimentel, was performing his hit “Adorn” during the awards ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, when he attempted to leap over the heads of fans watching the show from an audience pit, which was about six feet wide. He took a few steps back before trying to make the flying jump over the audience. He managed to make it to the second stage, but kicked two women in the head and arm before falling on stage. In the video, you can see Miguel continue to sing while checking on the women he tackled, one of whom appeared to hit the floor, disappearing from camera view.
He later tweeted:
got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay

Another tweet showed a video of the young woman smiling standing next to the visibly embarrassed singer. Miguel told Billboard magazine: “I think it’s kind of clear what happened. But I’m very happy to bring my new friend, Khyati, we just met. Unfortunately we, did not meet under the best circumstances, but I think we’re okay.”
